Default [Q] Non TW4 launcher

Hi If I use Go Launcher or LP do i lose any built in functionality apart from not getting email counts ( stopped working for gmail anyways in TW4) , sms etc? Is there a way to get those counts in Go Launcher?

GMail counts stopped working for everyone because Google changed the API and no longer allows 3rd party apps to query the GMail database.

On my Moment, I've fixed that problem by deleted the updated GMail and replacing it with an older version. LP now happily displays my new mail count.

Once we get root, we should be able to do the same with the ET4G.

Works for K9 so it can work for any and all emails as long as you use K9. I do so it works perfect

It use the following counts:
Text Messages
Missed Calls
Unread GMail
Unread K9
Unread Facebook Messages
